The UVA a cappella group, Remix, performed in the AHS media center Wednesday during CHAT as part of the celebration of Black History Month.

They performed three songs, including Fetty Wap’s “Trap Queen,” as part of the events happening all throughout February. 

“I think it’s a great way to bring everyone in the school together, regardless of ethnicity, to enjoy [the music],” sophomore Liam Briehl said.  

The media center was filled with vocally-made music and accompaniment that made everyone smile as the lead singer rapped her way through the verses. A diverse group of students filled the library to rejoice in African American heritage.

“I think they brought out a lot of music that incorporated pop culture and contemporary styles from the 90s and wove it in to recent culture, and expressed inclusion and music for everyone to enjoy,” librarian Monica Carbarcas said.

The performance was positively received by students and staff.

“I thought it was great because the students that were in the group were of a variety of cultures and ethnicities and it appealed to all the students that were in the library that afternoon,” librarian Erica Thorsen said. “Hopefully it will broaden awareness and appreciation of black culture.”
